Excellent food but the service is very uneven and staff got a bit mixed up with each other. For the price, I would expect much more attentive service and no long wait between courses.

Hi I am not ususally inclined to review however due to the extremely poor service I feel obliged to share.
To start it was a 15-20min wait to be asked for water.
Service throughout the course was sub par and difficult to order drinks.
Wait staff were not receptive nor explained the dishes.
Definitely the worst degustation service I have ever had.
Clearly not worthy of the $500+

No exaggeration at all ... this was a perfect dining experience. I come to Sydney once a year and my daughter chooses a top restaurant for me and this is certainly now in my top ten World class list!!

We had the five course menu ... each course was a masterpiece of taste combinations. The staff were a delight and we felt thoroughly spoilt.

I had an amazing meal at Bentley. It's one of the few restaurants in Australia that manages to deliver a complete dining experience: innovative food, a library of wines, playful libations from the bar, all delivered by informed and spirited staff.

Bentley Restaurant is a beautiful space and a place where one can enjoy a wonderful meal served by a professional waitstaff. The menu is small, but the dishes are creative and beautifully presented. This is an excellent place to enjoy a special occasion meal.

Beautiful food both taste-wise and visually, and coming off an imaginative menu. The staff are very pleasant and attentive. The venue is striking, with a great combination of old stately grandeur, complete with a modern twist. Given the number of diners there, the restaurant was still pleasantly quiet. The additional 'starters' - which came as a surprise - were lovely.

Menu was varied and staff were very knowledgeable about details of the menu selection. Meals need side dishes as I would describe the accompaniments as decorative or designed to add to taste as opposed to adding to the meal.
We had a good experience and the staff were excellent .

Food was good, however the overall experience was let down by the service. We had the 5 course degustation which took 2 and. Half hours due to delays in service. We were onto our second course (2 people) before a table of three was seated before us who ended up up getting their 4th and 5th courses before us, even though we had finished previous courses first. One course came before accompanying drinks were served. It is a pity as we had heard great things and the food was good.

My wife and I had the 5 course dugustation menu and it was absolutely superb. The different tastes in every course we absolutely fantastic. Every course was an explosion of taste and perfectly blanced so you could enjoy every flavour. We are not fans of degustation menus but this meal knocked it right out of the park. A truly amzing meal. Thanks you

This was my second time at Bentley and again, I could not have been happier! The saying "a tummy full of happiness" is apt to describe the feeling after dining here. The food, ambiance and service all combine into a perfect package that can be enjoyed by anyone for almost any event, special treats and date nights in particular. Would highly recommend this place to all those foodies out there who want a taste of authetic modern Australian cuisine - this one's a must try!

Group of 7. Took 20mins to be seated. Descriptions of food by table staff were good but could have included more about why the flavours work together. Same with the wine.
Catered very well to gluten free requests, even had separate wine pairing. A damn good dining experience but not quite magical.

We use to go to Bentley's on crown and loved the food, wine and services. The new Bentleys is more up market but still exceptional food and wine list. the Sommelier make the tasting menu a real adventure and each serving is a new taste sensation. I strongly recommend the 5 course degustation,they are big servings and a real delight. This is not a cheap night out but if you can afford it you will not be disappointed. absolutely fantastic

We had a lovely lunch here, though it appeared to be mainly a business clientele we felt very much at ease, we are both now past working in the city. It may be more intimate over dinner.

The food is rich in the french tradition and very good being full flavoured, service relaxed and knowledgeable.

The dishes were innovative and added to the overall experience.

A restaurant that is easy to return to and recommend.

We dined here for my husband's 40th birthday and we both absolutely loved it! The food was a perfect mix of innovation, flavour and drama ...and the John Dory Amuse Bouche was particularly delicious! The Kangaroo tartare and Wagyu skirting were stand out. The Hombre chicken was possibly the best chicken dish we've even had. And to top it off, a beautifully designed dining room furnished dramatically in all black with sexy mood lighting. Plus excellent service and an impressive wine list.
